Dear Room 2 - 2017

Dear Students of Room 2

Yay! Today is the final school assembly and your last school day for 2017.
What a fantastic year it has been for you all too. Today some of you have received some 
well-deserved  prizes for all of your hard work and effort throughout this year.  However all of you should be so proud of yourselves and all you have accomplished this year.

Firstly, you have pulled off some amazing assemblies, you have created laughter from your humorous skits and funny jokes.  You have wowed your audience with your singing.  And you have presented some pretty impressive animations and movies.  

Secondly, You have stepped up and took on our roles for Taumata, Absentee Runner and School Patrol. You have worn our school colours and represented Kawakawa Primary School for Ripper Rugby, Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics.  You have shown self discipline in our syndicate kapa haka and you have been selected for class of the week more than once.

Finally, I am amazed at how you all have progressed in your learning. I have seen every one of you blossom in class, whether it was for Reading, Writing, Maths, P.E, Art, Topic. Thank you Room 2 for trying to be the best that you can be.  Good luck to those of you who are doing the Summer Learning Journey, I am looking forward to seeing your blog posts and I am crossing my fingers that one of you wins a prize.

Have a fun-filled holiday and thank you Room 2 for making my 2017 a great one.

Yours sincerely,  Whaea Sally

Project Put ups at the KEN 2017 Movie Night

While most of us in Room 2 were having the time of our lives at our Marsden Bay Camp, our class movie for the 2017 KEN Movie Night was being showcased at Northland College in Kaikohe. 
This short film was based around people who have experienced "put downs."  
Our class chose 3 of our students and decided to treat them to something very special.  
Have a look below. 

Thank you to Tunisia and Jacqui who went and introduced our movie at Northland College.  
We knew you were very nervous at the time and we are so proud of you both.

Hooray! We were chosen as class of the week again.  Thank you so much to Room 1 and Mrs Norman for choosing our class this week.  Whaea Sally was so proud of us and gave us a little free time as a reward.

Next week we will be looking for the best class who:
(1) Shows respect and sings proudly in Taumata,
(2) Takes pride in our school by keeping it clean, and
(3) Shows respect and encouragement in next week's assembly.

First Assembly for Term 4

We had a great start for the last term of school and spent all week preparing for our class assembly.
Our first item was a beautiful song called "Space in between" sung by Tunisia and Tahlya, they only had a few practises but we were so proud of their confident cheering, the crowd was so supportive of the girls too.

We decided to read one of Roald Dahl's revolting rhymes together as a class.  Whaea Sally grouped us together and gave each group a character.  Together, the group had to read their parts of the revolting rhyme, it was very tricky at first, but we managed to read the whole rhyme together by Assembly day.  Our next steps are to work on volume and projecting our voices out into the crowd.

Razor, Karisa, Treziah and Angel stood before the school and read out some of their "I am" poems that we created last Term.  Some of the teachers gave them some lovely feedback about their poems and Whaea Sally was proud of them for sharing their work.  Here is what their "I am" poems look like in class.

And last but not least we shared with the school our top 4 rules for surviving Room 2.  We thought that it would be a good idea for next years students to know the ins and outs of Room 2 and together we put together this video.  We had so much fun making this movie together, and we were so glad the rest of the school enjoyed it too.  

Tell us what your favourite rule was and leave it in the comments below.

Cross Country 2017

We had our whole school cross country at the United Kawakawa rugby field on Thursday and what a day it was.  We were lucky enough to travel to there by train and boy was it noisy.  The train was filled with singing and Whaea Sally strumming on the guitar, excited chatter among friends, not to mention the squeals from some of the students who has never been on the train before.

Well done to all our students who have made it to the SBOI inter school cross country:
Deeny, Tahlya, Angel, Mia, Vaughan, Dayton, LJ, Razor, Nathan and Daniel.
